Place by the Danube, wonderfully decorated, food was ok, good selection of wines, a bit expensive, but the staff and service was very poor. Unkind waiters, no smile, had to wait for ages for the service, although it wasn't crowded. They had no manners.

Best Fresh Fish. Delicious seafood. Very nice helpful waiters. Service is perfect. Classic restaurant. The waterfront was closed but also nice to sit indoors.

An old traditional restaurant where you can enjoy the best of the Danube and Sava rivers to the sounds of live music. It’s good to book because the table is hard to get. I recommend smoked carp or fish soup for starters and pike-perch (Smuđ)...in the oven for the main course. We had a bottle of Aleksandrovic Triumh, excellent white wine. Overall excellent place, amazing food and service.More

We go there very often to get fresh fish and seafood dishes. Located right beside the Danube river and Zemun Cay its on a very nice location. This restaurant has great fish selection, wines and desserts. Our waiter was Nikola and he was excellent. We...had great fresh Sea Brem, two different risottos and grilled octopus. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and the musicians were great too. Would have been nice if they would have offered a cake as we said it was birthday occasion and I guess they forgot. Other times we came for such occasions they always offered cake. All in all its nice restaurant.More

From the first glance I felt that we were on the right place. Very cozy and stylish ambience in an old beautiful house. Service probably one of the best I’ve experienced recently! Even though not much of an expert for seafood I felt like we...picked best from the menu because of recommendations we’ve got from the waiter. Monkfish tail was extraordinary fresh and well prepared, very simple yet delicious. Although bit pricey this place is definitely must visit if you’re looking for extraordinary dining experience.More

Was very good music and meal combination. Its the oldest restaurant in Xemun and therefore very traditional. They definetely know how to cook the octopus

Very old restaurant which I visit for more than 30 years and it has been consistently good throughout the years. Great sea or river fish dishes , excellent service and atmosphere . Don't miss the fish soup , its spicy and delicious. Prices are higher...than usual in this region but its worth it.More

After getting recommendations from several friends for quite a while about this place, namelly ambiance and live music on su days, we finally decided to make a reservation and try it, hoping to have a good time. It was very disapointing... Veryrood hostess awaiting at...the door wqs just the beginning... the band was making a break - for over 1,5 hours, our whole duration of beijg there, and have only started playing after we have already finished our dinner and were heading to the door, and that quietly and in a whole another part of the restaurant, which mind you was 6 to about 7:30pm. The music from the sound system was like at the funeral, my dish was charged the full price of the wild fish even though I was served the farmed one (as clearly informed bu the waiter) and pricess are veeery high for the service and especially knowing that significantly better seafood for much more reasonable price is served just a little down the road by foot. I am extremely disapointes with the whole experience!More

Its about a 5-10min car drive, depending on traffic. There are express buses going as well from the bus station Zeleni Venac, also about 10min trip.
